, the des moines register has not in decades endorsed a republican. they have said that governor romney, and they make interesting points about it's the economy that's most important to people, and even though both president obama and governor romney are harvard law graduates and good family men, when it comes to running a business and getting people back to work, which at least 23 million people are concerned about, governor romney is the man for the job and the des moines register is endorsing governor romney. >> huge in iowa, potentially. obviously completely stuck in the polls, the president seems to have had more people coming out in early voting but the statewide polling in iowa shows romney gaining. six electoral votes, it could come down to a margin of victory in the single digits. this one matters. it's also the case that the des moines register has gotten this endorsement correct in five of the -- all five of the last races. they endorsed al gore in 2000 and he got most of the popular vote. 80s pretty good bellwether. >> we're going to take a look at that in the next hour. the
. there were romney supporters, obama supporters. the number-one issue was the economy with a special focus on deficit and debt. here's some of the folks we spoke to. take a listen. >> right now there are a lot of issue that i care about. for example, i am environmentally conscious. i've been a vegan since i was 9. i care about clean energy, a lot about things like that. looking around at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me that there are people who can't get jobs. even though there are a lot of other issues i care about, i think that should be the number-one concern. yes, it's a little better, but i don't think it was where it should be at all. >> you're a romney supporter? >> yes, romney. >> euyou're a romney vegan? >> yes, i am. >> that's awesome. start a romney vegan facebook page. i want to see how many romney vegans there are out. there the romney camp should start this up now. >> the older generation, i think they want reagan back, right? everyone like votes for reagan as the ideal republican candidate. i don't think necessarily -- one way or the other, you know, i never lived
better, economy getting better. romney camp has got to figure out a way to blunt that somehow. >> i think paul ryan and mitt romney have done a very good job talking about what a real recovery looks like. what a recovery in the early 1980s began to look like when you are creating hundreds of thousands of jobs. not 150,000 jobs. or 100,000 jobs. i think people know what a recovery feels like around their own kitchen tables. that's why that ad that ran with the family just sitting in silence at dinner was so powerful during this election cycle because it was the anxiety that so many people feel, bill, regardless of politics. they know how their own family feels. >> bill: that's why governor romney is running strong in so many places. it's all about the economy. you don't disagree with me that libya is going to matter? no matter what comes out? >> well, i think it its actually played out already as far as the way the people think. i don't think we will learn anything else. the drip, drip, drip has been pretty interesting in the last few days. again, the press totally falling down. >> i think
the economy in ohio. on the integrity issue, the trust issue, mitt romney this week went to defiance, ohio, an told a group of 11,000 people, jeep is about to move all of their production overseas. i read that somewhere. not at all true. it's okay for a candidate it make a flub. but to not correct it, to not say i was wrong about that, the candidate went back, the campaign was asked, are you sure the candidate actually meant that? because that doesn't seem to be true. no response clearing that up from the campaign. there's been a truthfulness problem with the romney campaign that connects even to the very basic issues like the economy in the states where it most matters. >> and carly fiorina, from the other side you have governor romney not focusing on trust, saying look at the record. do you want another four years like what we've had? this is how he's teeing it up down the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on the trickle-down policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and that can bring american families the certainty that the
that jumps out is people started judging romney the winner on the economy. he's opened now a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character. then there's not much obama can do. but they had had luck with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. it's been funny at the personality level to see john kasich talk about how much better things have gotten under his leadership. we'd really to prefer you say things are going badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they have that improving economic numbers problem as it were on the republican side in florida and ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted to do things differently than barack obama? >> they are hitting it there. basically things are on the upswing in ohio. and to keep it going, you need to change leadership in washington
and get jobs again and get this economy growing. >> reporter: mitt romney's solution would be to ease government regulations to encourage lenders to offer refinancing to more homeowners. >> foreclosures are the lowest in five years. >> reporter: president obama wants to expand refinancing programs for borrowers. he wanthe wants to include morts owned by banks. obama also wants lenders to offer unemployed homeowners a one one-year grace period from foreclosure. >> i'm feeling very abandoned. >> reporter: juneau isn't sure either plan can help him in time. he hopes the bank will agree to sell his house for $200,000 less than he owes. >> all the taxes i've paid in the past and all the things i did for my country in the service is wasted. my life feels like it's a waste. >> reporter: with a failed business and a foreclosure on his credit report, juneau won't be able to even consider buying another home for at least three years. manuel bojorquez, cbs news, ft. lauderdale, florida. >> brennan: coming up, a reporter's notebook on afghan farmers' dependence on illicit crops. >> brennan: plant
. what can be done by president romney to change the trajectory of this economy with more than a job creation machine? >> number one data piss-off the fiscal cliff. so we don't have a severe recession but simplify the tax code. fire ben bernanke to get somebody who realizes to cheapen the dollar is not the way to wealth. >> he could force him out. >> harry truman showed you could fire the fed chairman. [laughter] as well as a general. [laughter] lou: none of that has the immediate effect of those who have suffered under this administration. those who don't have ajob and are underemployed giving up then we have a group of ceos speaking up for the multinationals we would like to go to the simpson thing. we want to raise taxes. reject it --ejected by both republicans and democrats. we hear from business leaders they come up with this. >> how low do the fine balance? i will take that. remove the tax shelter and cut the top rate. >> rahm it -- romney is already proposing nonsense. >> we have a huge tax increase aready slowing the ecomy down. to the clutter the tax code everyone can declar
's about the economy. and in ohio, both governor kasich and mitt romney are right. governor kasich is right that his policies, fundamentally different than obama's, lower taxes, close the budget deficit, make -- create a regulatory environment that encourages investment and certainty, that those are improving the situation. governor romney is also, however, correct that there's a long way to go and that there are lots of people in ohio and elsewhere around this country who are unemployed or underemployed, and we have huge progress. and 2% gdp growth is nothing to crow about. in fact, it's less growth than in 2011 and less than 2010. >> all the economic news is because of republican policies and all of the bad economic news is because of democratic policies? >> you said it. not me. >> it's funny. it's just disingenuous. >> how much of this is a problem in terms of how people feel, rachel? we see more economic optimism in the country and, yet, people are still feeling like the obama record is lackluster, and you look at the recovery, still not feeling like it's robust enough. >> yeah, and you
in ohio is the economy. mitt romney flat out opposed the rescue, although he's tried to reinvent that time and time again. it's not surprising he would lie about car manufacturing jobs going to china. if he admits the the truth, he'll be finished in that state. so he's out there creating a story, telling people that a plant is going to be shut down by chrysler and the jobs are going overseas. nothing could be further from the truth. this is just falling right into the hands of the obama campaign. you can't make this stuff up. but you see if he were to talk about the 1100 jobs that chrysler added in detroit, then of course, that would be complimenting the president on job creation and saving the automobile industry. it's a tight spot for romney and his surrogates. get your cell phones out. tonight's question, is lying the only way mitt romney can win ohio? text a for yes, b for no to 622639. you can go to our blog online. we'll bring you results later on in the program. i'm joined by a couple sources who know all about automobile rescue. that is former governor ted strickland of ohio. and a
and romney is the businessman to get the economy going but he said that he's going to reverse frank d.o.d. and i think he was -- dodd-frank and he said that he was going to maintain and that was tendering to the independents. the best i can tell he and ryan's policy simulate britain's which is in a full blown recession. so non-can tell what romney is saying or speaking. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street and i think he is saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. host: go ahead. guest: i think mitt romney has been pretty straightforward on where he is going to be focusing his presidency in terms of the five-point plan to get america going again and rebuild and bring 23 million jobs. regarding dodd-frank there were good ideas in there but it needs to be reworked. the whole concept of going in and legitimizing the too big to fail bank should concern all americans. so there is definitely some changes that need to be made in that piece of legislation. host: next up is kenneth from north carolina on our line for democrats. caller: good morning. i appreciat
that connects the economy in the states that matter. >> carly, you have governor romney not focusing on trust. do you want another four years like we have had. >> this is not the time to double down and trickle down on policies that failed us. it's time for bold changes that measure up to the moment and bring america's families up that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point focusing on ohio. 7% unemployment in that state. how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in battleground states? >> that important state has a republican governor that's done the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. he's lowered taxes and closed budge elt deficits. i find the trust comment hard. president obama promised we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate lower than we have. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya. we have an extraordinary thing where the president comes out on friday and says i directed that everything possible should be done to aid our embassy under attack.

, republicans have clearly emphasized mitt romney has emphasized the economy. one thing, i want to ask about this it's not been brought up much, the obama campaign has made strategic decision not t try to blame the economy on bush even though let's face it, most of the damage occurred just as he was leaving office. >> he had to come up with a new message. >> point is the economy tanked in late '07 or -- mid '08. obama president campaign not been trying to say this is bush's fault. but a lot of people recognize that there was clearly republican involvement there. i'm just wondering if women voters are more likely to say to themselves, i'mor the economy but i don't trust the republican guy because the economy tanked when a republican was in office. >> for one thing, look, i think republicans and democrats are both to blame for where our country is today. it wasn't one party that set up the $16 trillion debt. i think president obama put the pedal to the metal but both parties for blame. i think that's where we are as a country, we have two different choices. what mitt romney is talking about is
higher than forecasted. mitt romney has won the economy, not by a huge margin. generally, that's a good thing for a challenger. he's won the issue of bipartisan. i think president obama's trying to close some of that ground. but people will say that the ability to capture the center is important to them. they seem to be tilting a little bit in mitt romney's favor. those are good fundamentals. they don't make up, in my mind, as best we can tell for the very formidable electoral college math that is working much more in president obama's favor. gwen: what do you think about that, jackie? >> i agree. we could be looking at, we're all sort of talking and gaming an electoral college victory for the president who loses the popular vote. does anybody really think that's going to happen? >> i do, yes. >> or are you wishing that to happen? >> well, we are journalists. it's certainly possible. and i think boarding towards probably. >> the hurricane damage won't affect the electoral vote but it will take some electorals from barack obama. >> it could drive up the popular vote. >> i would say a pop
direction. if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. >> that's the first mitt romney anti-obama ad said this year. quoting the president as saying if we keep talking about the economy we're going to lose. here's what president obama actually said. >> senator's mccame's campaign actually said and i quote, if we keep talking about the economy, we're going to lose. >> he was quoting somebody else, to criticize the quote. the romney campaign intentionally took president obama totally out of context. totally out of context so that was a complete lie and the response when they got called out on it was not to cut a new version or pull it down their response was to say they meant to do that and mr. romney personally defended that ad and it's still on their website. with seven days before the election not be a surprise that the closing argument is an ad that even the usually-unoffendable beltway press is calling a flat-out lie. it's not clear at this point how much campaigning is left before election day given the storm bettering the east coast right now. both candidates have offic
think the economy is not doing well and i think romney is the guy that can turn it around, gets back on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing them with a better future. and this has been a very stable race in ohio. largely because of the senat

/"washington post" poll, stephanie, it shows romney making headway on the economy. who's offering a clear plan. back in july, obama had a 16-point lead on that measure. today, it's tied. we know that president obama is focusing on that now. did you wait too long? >> absolutely not. i mean, you know, it's interesting that you're pointing out your national tracker poll but in the virginia poll that you just cited we are beating mitt romney in terms of who do you trust to get the economy going? in terms of the president's plans, we're happy to talk about them. the president laid them out at the convention. we ran a two-minute ad on it. we have been campaigning across the country on this plan. you know, whether it's putting the best trained workers in place all over this country. bringing jobs back to this country, rather than sending them overseas or doing some nation-building at home. we're ending two wars. using that savings to do nation-building here at home. these are big plans and the president laid them out at the convention and it's a second term of an obama presidency will mean. it stands in sh

better in ohio. people are focused on the economy and jobs, and, mitt romney has a plan that is pro-growth and pro jobs to turn this thing around and, obama doesn't and when people look at the last four years they are disappointed, they must be. look, we are living through the weakest economic recovery since the great depression. and, there are 22 million americans struggling to find work and 3.5 million more women in poverty and take home pay has gone down $4300 per family on average and it is not the right direction, we are headed in the wrong direction and you have president obama, you are right. he has a glossy brochure and i've looked at that brochure and as you know i played the role of obama during the debate preps and it is more of the same and you can argue we need to do more of the same but it hasn't worked and hasn't worked by president obama's own measurements, he said unemployment would be 50% lower, than it is, if we passed the stimulus package and, economic growth would be 2/3 higher than it is. and the one thing that is in his now parole is to raise taxes and he want
saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after the stimulus was passed, the white house promised that the economy would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth means slow job growth. and declining take home pay. that's what four years of president obama's policies have produced. americans are ready for change. for growth, for jobs, for more take-home pay and we're going to bring it to them. >> hearing mitt romney say that word "change" a lot lately. ten days until election day. >> so glad you're there to walk us through it. thank you so much. >>> we're just getting started on the presidential race. coming up, what state is really going to have the biggest impact. and what voting group is being misrepresented. we'll get that for you. >>> plus, a musical legend makes a public show of support for a soldier surrounded by controversy. graham nash joins me live.
obama can claim the economy is growing, but governor romney can claim it's not growing fast enough. >> voters have basically drawn their conclusions about the economy already so, you know, the impact that a g.d.p. number can have or that the final jobs report on the friday before the election is going to have is won only at the margins. now, this election is close enough that the margins matter. >> reporter: as west mentioned, the last unemployment before the vote comes out a week from today. surprise in either direction could influence the outcome of the election. >> pelley: and anthony, that election is now officially the most expensive in u.s. history. it just passed that milestone. the latest numbers show the presidential campaigns and the super pacs that back them have now raised more than $2 billion. now, some other key numbers in the race. 11 is the number of days before the election. five is the number of points separating the candidates in the latest gallup poll. it shows governor romney ahead of the president 51% to 46%. a "washington post" poll shows the race tighter tha
out is people started judging swing voters really started judging romney winner on the economy. he's opened up a high lead over obama on the economy. if that overrides their concerns about his personality and character, then there's not much obama can do. but they had luck, you know, with romney's personal negatives before that. so there's potential there. >> i wonder if the -- i was thinking about this with the appearances in ohio. looking at the economic numbers in ohio. of course it's been funny at the personality level to see ohio republican governor john kasich try to talk to ohio about how much things have gotten better under his leadership and have the romney campaign think, shhh, we'd really prefer to say things here are going very badly. as the campaign shrinks down to a small number of swing states and they do have that improving economic numbers, problem as it were, on the republican side, in places like florida and especially in places like ohio, does that change the type of argument they need to make about change? about why mitt romney is the guy who should be trusted
the economy growing than the jobs report this week suggested. >> let's turn to a mitt romney ad this week about president obama. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? under obama, millions of people can't find work. and more families on welfare and a record number of americans on food stamps. mitt romney understands business, knows how to create jobs, and get our economy moving. he's done it before, he can do it again. >> paul: james, good message? >> well, i think so. the second half of it was positive and the first half, the secretary of business idea, it's a number of the-- one of the number of signs suggesting that the obama campaign thinks it's losing where they're throwing out ideas late in the campaign as a kind of a disorganized panicked quality and as the ad says, another bureaucracy is not the answer. >> paul: don't we have a secretary of commerce that's supposed to be a secretary of business? >> and we don't even need that one so the idea t
it reflects barack obama's antipathy toward mitt romney? >> personal? >> i think so, he's been wanting to take him down from the beginning. and he's been running the same campaign from the beginning. and voters are out there still the economy the number one issue, waiting for the president to tell them what his plan is for a second term to get the economy growing than the jobs report this week suggested. >> let's turn to a mitt romney ad this week about president obama. >> barack obama says he may appoint a secretary of business. his solution to everything is to add another bureaucrat. why not have a president who actually understands business? under obama, millions of people can't find work. and more families on welfare and a record number of americans on food stamps. mitt romney understands business, knows how to create jobs, and get our economy moving. he's done it before, he can do it again. >> paul: james, good message? >> well, i think so. the second half of it was positive and the first half, the secretary of business idea, it's a number of the-- one of the number of signs suggesting th
they believe. romney has made rebuilding the economy his number one campaign priority and rightly so. that's from the des moines register. obama deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter dismissed the endorsement yesterday morning. >>> it was a little surprising to read that editorial because it didn't seem to be based at all in reality. not just in the president's record but in mitt romney's record. it says he'd reach across the aisle which he'd do the exact opposition. over the course of running for president over this last six years he's never once stood up to the far extreme right wing. >> in an editorial last week the paper publicly chided the white house for insisting that the president's conversation be kept off the record. the register insisted that had no bearing on the endorsement decision. >>> over the weekend president obama made a campaign stop in new york, a state with pour electoral votes. could make a bit of a difference. joe and mika caught up with the press backstage about one issue that has become a problem. the attack of benghazi in libya. >> the intell? the stories keep
and ann romney about how only thing women care about is the economy. let's say that's true. do you know that under barack obama's leadership we have seen more private sector jobs created in the past three months than under george w. bush in eight years? >> yes. >> and mitt romney wants to take us back. so i can't even envision a romney presidency, but you're absolutely right. the supreme court is critical. everything that, you know, our constitution protects for us is at stake. >> let me bring in karen here. karen, i know that part of what president obama has done so beautifully is to make this argument that senator boxer is making there, the reproductive rights are economic rights, they are pocket book issues. >> that's absolutely right. i serve on the board of pro choice america. one of the things i know, the senator knows this, we found out about a year ago and gallup found it as women, ell, in battleground states, high percent sage of women, access to abortion care is higher than the economy, higher than jobs because women understand, again, that if you don't have access to birth co
that the romney campaign is trying to target, particularly with a message of trying to improve the economy for you. on the converse sood you got democrats targeting poorer white women saying planned parenthood could be at stake and for those women that's -- chris: to make your point, the last nbc poll, those women, blue collar white women, 43-28 romney. let me try one other thing by you. >> it's about unemployment. chris: joe, and go around. anybody have any -- the term black swan, something that comes out of nowhere and like we had with henry kissinger back in vietnam saying peace is at hand or bin laden tape that came out at the last minute and really hurt john kerry. >> you know, 401-k's are such a huge part of the way people think about the economy now. something like 65% of the american people have them. the stock market has been drifting down. it's very close to the 13,000 mark. if it falls over the next nine or 10 days, that may not be very good for obama. if it comes back over the next nine or 10 days, it may be -- chris: it's been doing that back and forth. black swan ideas? >> you can al
handle on. romney has a handle on the economy, the handle on government spending. neil: what should romney do with this? i always thought romney botched it in the debates were sort of like a gift that should have been for him that he screwed up, but what does he do? >> he got a little shy when he got hit so hard on september 12 from the press reacting too soon. this will be a lot up to this is where the special interest groups or the outside groups, third-party groups come into play in making this a big issue making sure people know about it but also something you hear a lot of people talking to each other about and that is what undecided voters are going to affect them. the personal relationship they have with people. when something comes to attack on american soil at an american embassy and american people, that is a concern. that is the concern for every american. nobody wants this edition to be attacked. there was a possibility we could do something about it. neil: thank you very much. for those of you just coming in here. there was a shift in developments that bears repeating a
the economy. bill clinton has, president obama has, mitt romney has in reality the president has very limited control over how the economy works and whether jobs are created or not. this is something out of the president's control. mitt romney says he'll create 12 million jobs. but a lot of analysts say 12 million jobs are created whether it's mitt romney, president obama or alex witt as the president. not clear the president has that much power over the economy. on health care the president has a lot of power in terms of what he can do. mitt romney wants to repeal health care which will be a big change. president obama wants to implement the health care bill which really hasn't been enacted yet. that's the real core to these candidates that would make a difference in people's lives. >> do you know how many people you put through heart pal pytations? >> former senator republican judd gregg joins me next. will the congress work with the president if he is re-elected. >>> now what's the latest on the devastation left by hurricane sandy. the president met with cabinet officials and governors to
. mitt romney has made a strong case about laying out why we don't have a better economy. why he would lead the country in a direction toward creating more jobs. i think that has been the strength toward his campaign. when you get into the military, that has been an issue. it was a much bigger issue in 20008. getting into the benghazi issue talking about the attack in libya has not played much in the campaign. it has been more of an issue that the pundits have battled around but you will not hear that on the campaign trail from voters and elsewhere. host: tennessee on the independent line. go ahead. caller: hi. i've been watching this for the last couple days and i wonder -- he is really trying to help the middle class. i have a business in tennessee. i think he is a good president. mitt romney already has everything. he does not know what it feels to be black or white in the middle class. give obama i chance. host: a small business owner from tennessee. guest: small business is always in the campaigns and it gets laid out pretty simply that democrats raise taxes and hurt small busines
obama? or bolster romney's claims on the economy? jake tapper is in ohio. good morning, jake. >> reporter: good morning from a barn outside columbus, george. that's right, with this race so close here in ohio, any major event could tip undecideds or soft voters into the obama camp or the romney camp. so, all eyes are on the jobs report in this nail-biter of an election. stumping for votes, the candidates leave no stone unturned. in west virginia, romney was heckled. >> what about the climate? that's what caused the storm. >> reporter: he did some heckling of his own against the president. >> the president said he was going to consider putting in place a secretary of business. i don't think that what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something about job creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president that actually understands job creation. >> reporter: as the president did in green bay, vegas, and boulder. fresh from hurricane sandy, he talked unity. >> there's no democrats or republicans dung a storm. just fellow americans. >> reporter:
can balance the budget without cutting tax rates because that's how you get the economy moving. you've got to have growth. i think it's doable. we are going to need cooperation, but i'm hopeful that after the election, maybe they'll sit down and we can talk. >> mitt romney's saying he's going to balance the budget by the end of the second term. that means running deficits for the next eight years. only thing i've seen on his website is $500 billion in cuts in the year 2016. that's not dealing with the debt for another four years. >> if we can move faster and further, we certainly will, but governor romney wanted to propose something he thought we could do. >> he's going to close loopholes to do it. you and i are both familiar are w the studies that say that's not possible or tough to do. let's just say in order to get there, he can't cut by to 20%. he has to cut by 10. maybe 4. would he adjust that promise? >> well, he's certainly willing to talk. when you do tax reform, what you do is you establish the basic parameters, which he's done in this proposal. you get everybody together a
recruitment on spending and you have mitt romney leading on the economy on spending, on jobs and who can get things done. that's not going to change with a couple of events today. i think what's more important is what's going to happen with those jobs numbers on friday to kind of crystallize this campaign. but the reason why we're seeing the models the way we are, is intensity of republicans is so much higher than democrats. that's not going to change with today's event. >> i was stunned, you tell me whether you buy into this or not. gallup ran a poll that says those who already voted, romney is ahead 42 -- i beg your pardon. 52-45. the whole obama strategy, as i understood it, was to get their voters out, then proclaim it and advertise it so they get a tidal wave. gallup says it's romney's early voters who are winning. is that possible? is it accurate? do you buy it? >> i don't know if it's totally accurate from what we're hearing on the ground. that's been the case in colorado. it's been the case in florida. what we are seeing in all the states is that the margin of lead that the democrats
-- she mentioned the issue of jobs and the economy. mitt romney has made a strong case about laying out why we don't have a better economy. why he would lead the country in a direction toward creating more jobs. i think that has been the strength toward his campaign. when you get into the military, that has been an issue. it was a much bigger issue in 20008. getting into the benghazi issue talking about the attack in libya has not played much in the campaign. it has been more of an issue that the pundits have battled around but you will not hear that on the campaign trail from voters and elsewhere. host: tennessee on the independent line. go ahead. caller: hi. for then watching this last couple days and i wonder -- he is really trying to help the middle class. i have a business in tennessee. i think he is a good president. mitt romney already has everything. he does not know what it feels to be black or white in the middle class. give obama i chance. host: a small business owner from tennessee. guest: small business is always in the campaigns and it gets laid out pretty simply that demo
are delivering closing arguments, making their final case for your vote. it's an election about the economy, so let's look at the evidence. jobs. president obama's argument, he's gained back every job lost under his watch. that's quite a feat, but romney says not good enough. >> we're going to create 12 million new jobs and more take-home pay. >> reporter: >> how is that possible, major economic growth. the economy grew at a 2% annual rate during the third quarter, better but not nearly enough to significantly boost hiring. romney will be much more than that to keep his jobs promise. how about housing. prices in some areas are rising, foreclosures slowing, but this is america and what will really get the economy going again is you. consumer spending rising, consumer confidence the best in four years. there's no doubt president obama inherited an economy in crisis, and his supporters will tell you he's turned things around. >> we have made real progress. >> his final argument, he deserves another four years to finish the recovery. mitt romney says his business experience and his big ideas are wh
presidential nominee, romney, spent the day in iowa talking about the economy. there he told supporters that president barack obama has only quote made the problem worse. >> the president's campaign slogan is this, forward. but for 23 million americans trying to find a job these past four years feel more like backward. >>> for the democrats, joe biden hit the trail today while president barack obama spent the day in washington, d.c. >> it is always america is in decline. i got news for them. romney and ryan are -- america is not in decline you are in denial. >> biden at a rally in keep oshaa, wisconsin. the polls have the -- kenosha, wisconsin. the polls have barack obama ahead in wisconsin. >>> bay area community college is showing students how they will be effected if they fail to pass an ordinance. the classes highlighted in red will only be offered if proposition 30 passes next month. if it fails the district says it will have to cut about 100 classes at the classes in livermore including science, english, math and history coursees. >>> a 27-year-old man was shot and killed. he was
reelected in economies like this and so the fact that romney was behind, with a lousy economy, was really quite remarkable. now, i think you also had, starting in august-september, a period of time where the stock market hit near a five-year high, consumer confidence started shooting up. granted, the stock market was moving up more because of the fed and anticipation of fed moves and things, but healthy market, finally started to shine some light. consumer confidence jumps up, and we started seeing in the polls that amy and i follow so closely, right direction, wrong track. >> and you have some argument that the economy would lean towards an obama win. >> the millstone around his neck was getting lighter. i mean, it wasn't -- no, it wasn't going to be an asset, but it was less of a liability and that was sort of -- and then 47% was -- you could -- you could look at the polls and see what day that happened. it really -- and where it hit, my colleague at national general, ron brownstein, did a lot of looking through the data and said it was noncollege educated white women, that took a huge
that should trust their job or their future in this economy to mitt romney. >> one of the things we hear in that ad is that mr. romney quotes, he has a plan for the auto industry. well, what is that plan? i mean, reporters have been asking his campaign for his plan for the auto industry. they got absolutely nothing. what is it? >> i know. reporters asked his campaign this morning. guess what? it was crickets. he hadn't said what his plan was. we know what his plan was in '08 and '09. he said let detroit go bankrupt. he said we don't have any business saving that industry. let the free market reign. instead of going into one of the worst recessions, we would have sunk into a depreths if mitt romney would have had his way. detroit would have gone bankrupt, michigan would have been in the tank, ohio would have been in the tank. mitt romney is wrong on this issue and it's going to cost him this election. >> brad, final question, if this ad says something about the romney campaign, what does it tell you about mr. romney's character? >> well, look, i think mitt romney has throughout the course
as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> as for mitt romney, he and paul ryan have canceled events tonight and tomorrow, but earlier in ohio governor romney did extend his concern and sympathy. >> on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times, and our hearts and our prayers go to them. >> indeed. prayers are always important, but even more so if romney were to become president since prayer and the private sector would take the place of the federal emergency management agency as he stated in a tea party debate last year. >> fema is about to run out of money and there are some people who say do it on a case by case basis and some saying maybe we're learning a lesson that states should take on more of a role. absolutely. every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. if you can go any further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> to which one might ask, even better for who, mr. romney? we'll get to our panel for
